If you’re visiting this section, it’s because you see the value of attaining the prestigious FACHE credential. Similar to physicians who become Board-certified in their area of specialty, healthcare administrators also devote a great deal of time and effort to refining their knowledge and experience in today’s complex healthcare environment. Advancing within ACHE by earning the FACHE credential is one way to demonstrate to the healthcare community that you’ve committed to our field of endeavor and that you have the right mix of experience, continuing education, professional/civic involvement - as well as the respect of healthcare colleagues who provide references - to represent our profession in this changing arena.
